Best Sunscreen May Be the Cheapest

Posted: Updated:

 Paying more does not always mean better quality, at least when it comes

to sunscreen.

"It is surprising. Everyone wants to cut where they can

but you don't want to cut the quality," said Nicole Sarubbo of Consumer Reports.

Consumer Reports tested 12 broad spectrum sunscreens.

They found some of the least expensive brands were the most efffective.

Leading the pack - store labels like Target's "Up & Up" and Walmart's "

Equate."

Brand names like Coppertone and Hawaiian Tropic also ranked well.

Others, like All Terrain and Badger fell below standards.

The problem according to Consumer Reports, these brands protect against UVA rays but do not provide as much UVB protection.
